The word "enchantment" kept popping up in his readings about AVAM and visionary art, and before moving to Baltimore he lived for seven years in Guatemala, which has been called "the land of enchantment," Haas said.

Before Mr. Rain's FunHouse opened at AVAM in 2009, the third-floor space was occupied by several distinct versions of Joy America Cafe, including Peter Zimmer's 1996 original and, later, a Mexican-themed restaurant operated by Spike Gjerde, now of Woodberry Kitchen.
